Situation solved. Today's Parade magazine says that Boston is the best city for online dating.

Ironically he's probably about as good looking as Bill Gates and will soon be back here complaining that the hot women won't give him the time of day.

I know a lot of drop dead gorgeous women in the Orlando area, generally they can't be bothered with guys that are as shallow as the OP.

there are plenty of "hot" girls in Orlanda. problem is, most of them have more class than you are looking for. Maybe try Miami. Down there if you throw enough money at them, they will go out with anything.

lol@the responses. I've just got back from a visit and worries unfounded (if anything, met a decent gal at the plaza on the first night). Especially considering the average obesity rate in the States nowadays, imo I didn't think the Orlando area as a whole suffered too badly and found Miami to be a lot more shadier and rundown by comparison despite its reputation

Beautiful city that I hope does not go the way of Flint, Michigan but there is a clear need for a lot more commercial, especially in the downtown area. Wish I could have stayed in town longer to talk to more people. It actually surprised me considering how dead downtown was to see that people still came out there anyway. I would definitely recommend the city for anybody looking to start any kind of business, both online and physical as its immediately apparent the city needs it and the jobs. Aside from downtown I noticed that the city has grown too much residential sprawl and not nearly enough commercial, or various commercial areas outside of the dilapidated downtown core.

Myself the biggest problem is being stuck over in Canada just because the US lacks any kind of pro business immigration policy that would actually create jobs that isn't tied at the hip to illegal immigration reform (so basically nothing's going to get done and something like say startupvisa.com is going to ge buried), or I would have made the move already. The other problem is that while getting there is not insurmountable, I'm not getting any younger and it's clear that Orlando is a fixer upper and I'm running out of years myself and would like to enjoy a place like Santa Monica or LA before I get too old for it. But if I was talking to my fresh out of college self I would have said go out to Orlando and build an empire now in a heartbeat. It will be a tough decision in the coming months ahead.

PS I don't look like Bill Gates

Walkability? Great weather? are you nuts? The climate here is horrid. Orlando is also among the worst cities for pedestrians.

I think the monicker Shallow Gal fits pretty well in Orlando as well. You can look like Bill Gates as long as your wallet is as fat as his. When my wife and I attend my daughter's school functions, I'm amazed at the number of extremely attractive women married to men who look like they were hit with the ugly stick at birth. A few questions asked and we find the men all have M.D. or D.D.S. after their names. True love in some cases ? Sure ... in most, it's the love of the almighty dollar.

I don't really get your logic. How is it more shallow to go for the less attractive guy with a brain over a handsome face? Sure, the two aren't mutually exclusive and of course there are cases of obvious arm candy... but sometimes it's not all about the looks or the job.
